. >> reporter: next, affirming america's embrace of all religions. >> we not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. >> reporter: then a lesson in tolerance and the freedom of expressi expression. >> like me, the majority of americans are christian and we do not ban blasphemy against our own most sacred believes. i expect people will call me the most awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. >> reporter: seeing an inflexion point after the arab spring, the president called on the world's leaders to champion the same values. >> there is no speech that justifies mindless violence. there are no words that excuse the killing of innocence. there's no video that justifies an attack on an embassy. >> reporter: and president obama resisted campaign season pressure to intensify his rhetoric against iran. instead, he reiterated in stark terms his commitment to diplomacy and consequences if that fails. >> a nuclear armed iran is not a challenge that can be contained.

the backboards plots of the terrorists who do not represent libya, i do not represent islam. islam is a religion of peace and love, just as president obama said from this rostrum to days ago. our future will be a future chartered by people like chris stevens, not by people like his killers. in this context, i would like to express my condolences to the libyan people and to misrata for the death of a man who is joined some long list of martyrs five days ago. mr. president, i would like to express my deep appreciation for the actions of the administration following that moment of depression -- of distress. my mission is to pursue the perpetrators and bring them to justice. we shall make our utmost to strengthen the necessary protection granted to diplomatic and consular missions, and to ensure the safety of their employees and facilities. this painful event in no way expresses the feelings of the libyan people as people of moderation, hospitality, and gratitude. the large demonstrations condemning this lascivious crime in the city of van ghazi -- benghazi and other libyan cities is the true refle

not a freedom of expression that targets of a specific religion or a specific coulter -- culture. a freedom of expression that tackles extremism and violence, not the freedom of expression that deepens ignorance and as regards others. -- disregards others. we also as we have said before, and we also stand formally -- firmly against the use of violence in objection to these sentiments. mr. president, before i conclude, i must say that if -- that the severity of the financial and economic crises must lead us to review the economic decision making process on behalf of people that do not participate in their preparation. they are the first to bear the negative consequences in growth and trade and environment, as well as on the social fabric of society. as a result of unfair trade rules and conditionality is composed -- in post. - imposed. there is a need for a new, local, economic government. i say there is an urgent need for a new global economic government, centered on people and aiming at consolidating cooperation between partners and development on the basis of mutual benefit and

200 years, that in order to preserve freedom and liberty, including the freedom of religion, you have to allow people to say and do things that you find abhor ant. and you can't react every time you are insulted. i means that's the first thing we all have to teach our children. and i don't mean to compare the people rioting against news cairo and anywhere else to children, that's not the point. the point is if you live in a shame-based society where you think nothing good is going to happen, the temptation is to wait for somebody to say something you find offensive and you can lash out against it. but free people, mandela, absorb destructive things and refuse to be destroyed. there's a child here, i mean not a child, a young woman, i don't know if you have seen here. the disabled chinese lady, you have seen her, right. >> rose: yes. >> i went to her village, i was in her home, in 1998 as president. its with a great honor, right, not for her. her parents were required to take her upstairs and hide her, leave her on the bed upstairs because they live in a culture that thought there was

traditions. but there is a fundamental difference between israel and extremism. islam is a great religion peacefully over a billion people in our world. it's the most extremism is a warped political ideology supported by the minority that seeks to hijack this great religion to gain respectability for the violent objectives. it is vital that we make this distinction. in turkey we see the government with fruits and islamic values but one with democratic politics and open economy and responsible attitude to supporting change in libya and syria and elsewhere in the region. i profoundly believe that the same part is open to egypt to nisha and their neighbors and we must help them take it. democracy in islam can flourish alongside one another. so let us judge governments not by their religion, but how they act and what they do and let us in the region in a space government in egypt and tunisia said their success can strengthen democracy, not undermine it. mr. president, there is no doubt that we are in the midst of profound change and that many uncertainties lie ahead. the building blocks of de

, want an open society. and the other are basing themselves very much on a leftist view of religion and they're in a struggle. >> brian: you say that other group tends to be arm as opposed to the people who are modernized. that's the sad and frustrating part for us. >> the real problem is that you got kind of three elements jostling together in the middle east at the moment. regimes that have been in power a long time. they provided a certain stability, except they don't anymore. the second group are people who i would call your open minded, modern people who believe in pluralistic and open societies. they are badly organized. then you got your radical islams who are numerous and very well organized. unfortunately, therefore, it's going to take a significant amount of time before the second group actually comes through and takes power. >> gretchen: it's interesting because if you looked at the polls three, four weeks ago, most americans didn't care about foreign policy in this election cycle. it's interesting how politics changes on a dime. i mean, now you have this in the forefron

are engaged in war and we adopted a political theory meaning that terrorism has no religion and it is a common threat regionally and internationally. it requires an necessitates a common effort to fight terrorism within the frame, along with what we did to cement the corporation in combating terrorism with more than 40 nations, and that included all aspects in intelligence exchange, activities, and how best to combat and deter and have a bilateral meeting with those nations. this theory that has been adopted by the yemeni government comes with the understanding of terrorism and today it is not an isolated problem to a specific nation. it is, rather, an international threat from the political, social, economic levels. this will reflect the fierce willingham-- fears that the threats are diversified and transnational. there are lives that they're been lost. we have suffered and we are still suffering from terrorism and we have played a lot with blood and life. many of the public institutions, and it affected tourism. and now most of the hotels in yemen are closed. there are no foreigners at all.
